This was a rough week. Not only did I have a pile of assignments and such to be working on, and all the usual aches and pains, but I also managed to turn that ubiquitous back-to-school cold into a raging sinus infection. And, well, I don't react well to antibiotics, either, so let's just say… Continue reading perfect end to a terrible week
I've been a very poor participant in the blogging community lately. You'll have to forgive me...I'm currently buried under a pile of papers, research, homework, and a cold that just won't quit, all of which are exacerbating the health problems I've been plagued with for all these months now. I've seen so many lovely, lovely… Continue reading I’ve been a bad blogger

I'm doing my best to reply to comments, but thanks to classes, I'm sort of at my limit,… Continue reading thank goodness it’s friday
Two sweaters in as many weeks, how about that? This one is a bit more problematic, though, as you'll see. I finished the knitting on my Modified Cobblestone Pullover yesterday, and took some pictures despite the fact that I've not blocked it nor done any weaving-in of ends (though I did kitchener the underarm stitches… Continue reading Modified Cobblestone is (almost) done!
Here is a picture of a happy cat in a basket, just to keep this from being another one of those boring posts without pictures (because don't we all love the eye candy?): There. All better. Thanks, everyone, for all of the compliments and kind words about Demi in my last post. I'm still feeling… Continue reading back to school
